A change of scene

Lulworth Cove

From 25 February 2013 I’ll be freelancing from Dorset! More specifically, I am moving to Poole, though I’ll be very near Bournemouth too.

Why the move?

Well, change is good! After living in or near Brighton & Hove for the past 20 years, the prospect of new vistas, new people and new opportunities is thrilling. And while I will miss Brighton, I’m excited about all the new things we can do and see in Dorset.

What about work?

My freelance copywriting work is coming with me. Most of my work is carried out remotely (usually from the Werks in Hove) so moving to Dorset shouldn’t change anything. I’ll still visit clients and friends in Brighton, and there’s a train station just round the corner from the new house – so I can be in London within 2 hours.


I’m incredibly lucky to have started freelancing in Brighton, because there are hundreds of friendly people who have made the experience enjoyable, exciting and profitable.

Thanks to: Premasagar Rose, Michael Bailey, Ellen de Vries, Rosie Sherry, James McCarthy, Jonathan Markwell, Paul Silver, Darren Fell, Nick Carter and all of the other freelancers, programmers and writers who have helped me get started – and carry on!


WriteClub is thriving thanks to the endeavours of Alice Reeves, Helen Keevy and Rob Shepherd in Brighton, and the almighty Al Robertson in London.





  1. Hello trusty Leif.
    I’m afraid you cannot leave Brighton. I order you to stay.
    …otherwise I’m thinking we might have to arrange a copywriting hackfarm Poole-way?

    Make sure you do stay in touch. I’m still here for mighty collaborations – but I wish you lots of good luck and happiness for your new home. Let us know how it’s all going.
